Oz for (and by)Younger Readers

Several publishers, most notably Buckethead Enterprises of Oz and their successor Tales of the Cowardly Lion and Friends, feature books geared specifically for younger readers, many of which are even written by children themselves.  With the advent of self-publishing, additional titles have come forth written by children and published by their parents.

 

This section is arranged alphabetically by publisher, and then alphabetically by author.  Most of these books can be read as standalone stories.  The Buckethead/Tales of the Cowardly Lion titles form part of a larger tapestry (see the Parallel Histories page), as do the works of Roger S. Baum.
